Discover Paris from up high on the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower and explore the city at your own pace with two hop-on hop-off bus routes and a cruise on the Seine.

Go straight to the elevators at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower with your priority-access ticket and head up to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Wander around at your own pace and take in the unrestricted views over Paris. 

Once sitting comfortably on a double-decker bus thanks to your 1- or 2-day pass, you can make the most of the panoramic views on offer. Your tour will be punctuated by the informative and amusing commentary from your audio guide and stops at the capital’s many tourist sites. You can get on and off as you please as you explore these must-see sites and their surrounding areas, or maybe you would prefer to sit tight and enjoy the views on these two tours.

Whenever you want, you can go on a 1-hour cruise on the Seine and discover its quays, listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and the monuments and unique hotels along the river.
